The Harper's Bazaar Romania May/June 2012 'Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice' photoshoot is overtly rebellious. Model Samantha Gradoville is found smoking throughout the production, and is even captured topless, albeit covered up by a long overcoat. The restaurant and city park backdrops provide an interesting contrast here as they are unusual settings for this provocative display.

The Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice editorial was spearheaded by photographer Sylvie Malfray. Malfrays inclusion of long cigarette sticks coincides with a tendency in the fashion industry to brandish the Camel and Du Maurier labels, much to the dismay of health enthusiasts. Despite the warnings, publications like Harper's Bazaar have remained enamored with the habit.

Malfrays recalcitrant disposition is offset with dainty spring jackets and floral print dresses, merging her sly gaze with frilly summertime apparel.
